Outfit Advice for Amusement Parks

As the weather starts to get warmer and semesters come to an end, that means the start of summer time. The start of summer means having all access to everything that was closed during the fall and winter. After a long and cold wait, beaches, outdoor concert venues, campgrounds, theme parks and amusement parks start to become available again. After huddling in hoodies and parkas throughout the winter months, it is easy to forget how to dress for summer. If you have plans to go to an amusement park or a theme park sometime during summer, here is a guide on what to wear.

One thing to remember about taking a trip to an amusement park or a theme park is that you can choose to be there there for an entire day. One tip to remember when putting your outfit together is to be sure to dress in something that you can wear all day long. A comfortable, loose fitting outfit can achieve this. If you are not sure about what temperature it will be, layer your clothing. This way when the temperature starts to rise, you can take off a layer.

Tops: Depending on which month you choose to go to an amusement park during the summer, the shirt you pick to wear can vary. If you go during the beginning of summer, a hoodie can be the perfect choice. If you go towards the end of the summer, the shirt you pick could be a tank top. For whichever top you choose, pick one that is comfortable, lightweight, and loose to avoid being hot and uncomfortable.

Bottoms: Just like the tops, whatever bottoms you choose to wear can also vary. Jeans might not be the most comfortable pant to wear, but they will keep you warm. Leggings are also good to wear as bottoms since they are lightweight and comfortable. Shorts are good to wear when it is very hot outside. Try wearing flowy fabric shorts instead of jean shorts for a looser and more comfortable fit.

Shoes: Since you will be on your feet for most of the day, wear the most comfortable pair of shoes that you own. Gym shoes, sneakers, and flip flops are common comfortable shoes. Just make sure to wear a pair of shoes that you can walk around in that will not hurt your feet or give them blisters by the end of the day.

Swimsuit: If your theme park or amusement park has a water park, be sure to bring a change of clothes to be able to enjoy both the dry and wet rides. One tip is to wear your swimsuit underneath your clothes to avoid having to pack another outfit. Don’t forget to bring a towel, sunscreen, and a swimsuit cover up if you would like.
